Scared or Startled?

At last! Monday. The voice said as Janice climbed up the steps of her school. She didn’t know whether to be excited or terrified about seeing Kyle.
Relax, he’s just going to ask you out.
What if he isn’t?
We’ve been through this over and over again, of course he will! What else could he perfer to ask in person?
We’ll see.
Yes. We are going to see how I’m right yet again.

“Sure. Now where can he be?” Janice wondered looking around.
“Hey Janice,” a voice called out from behind her, making her jump. Perfect timing. “Along with several other perfect things,” she mumbled to herself before turning around.
“Hi Kyle,” she said with a small smile.
“Did I scare you?” he teased.
“No. Just startled me.” With your god-like features.
“Oh, since when is there a difference between scared and startled?” Kyle continued with the teasing.
“There is!”
“Sure. Whatever you say.”
“Just go along with me ok?”
“So if I remember correctly you have a question for me,” Janice asked, terrified of the answer.
